Parker

Stark raving average.


Action

Rod Lott
While it's admirable that Parker is dedicated to the memory of Donald E. Westlake, the legendary crime author who wrote two dozen novels about the character under the Richard Stark pen name, this Parker is not his Parker. It's Taylor Hackford's, and the director continues to apply his nondescript, workmanlike touch to average material (see Love Ranch, Ray, Proof of Life, etc.). He neither improves it nor harms it; he simply keeps it afloat.

The Naked Jungle

Red and black antennas waving, they all do it the same.


Drama

Rod Lott
Charlton Heston comes second-billed to eventual Sound of Music baroness Eleanor Parker in 1954's The Naked Jungle. Nowhere in the credits is there room to list the true stars — or at least the reason for watching: millions and millions of mean-ass ants.

RED 2

Better dead than ‘RED.’


Action

Zach Hale
Nobody in their right mind would mistake 2010's RED for high art. The film was a harmless, mildly entertaining caricature of a summer blockbuster that provided a fair amount of laughs and a hefty amount of explosions. Any notion of plot played second fiddle to graphic absurdity, but it at least bumbled about with a little bit of charm and charisma.

For horror, Carpenter build 'em best.


Horror

Rod Lott
So in John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness, a priest (Donald Pleasence, Halloween) calls up a professor (Victor Wong, Big Trouble in Little China) and says, "Hey, I've got this 2,000-year-old jar in the basement of this Catholic church downtown. Get this: It has the devil inside! Whaddaya say you round up some physics students to spend the weekend here and see if they can't figure out whassup?"

Nature’s (Lego) fury

Kids engineer Lego robots in order to save the human race — and possibly win a world title.


News

Danniel Parker

“A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.” This is Isaac Asimov’s first law of robotics and the core principle of the machines that serve their human child creators and overlords.
